A Spanish judge is considering charging six U.S  officials for “providing legal justification” for alleged torture at Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention camp.  The six served the former United States administration under George W. Bush. It is the same court, and same judge, that issued arrest warrants for charges of torture, murder and crimes against humanity against former Chilean dictator, Augusto Pinochet. One of those named seems surprised and more than a little peeved, although not that concerned. You gotta hand it to Spain, however, for doing more than useless lip service. Spanish investigations are going on in Argentina, Tibet, El Salvador and Rwanda.
